MADISON, Wis. (AP) -

The performance of child care providers in Wisconsin can now be found online.

The state has started posting the fines levied against the child care centers and the reasons for the fines. The move is backed by child care advocates and providers. The state began posting the fines online in 2008, but not the amount of the fine or any explanation.

Mosinee child care provider Anneliese Sheahan tells the State Journal it was unfair not to post the amount of the fine. She says there's a big difference between a $100 fine and a $1,000 fine
